Edilmari Longo Vega, Ministry Lead at Colegio San José, PR, sends us this update.
Colegio San José has undertaken several initiatives to reduce the carbon footprint within our school community and beyond:
Every Thursday, the Ecology Club works in our school garden along with Ms. Mildred Padilla. As part of their duties, they trim and water the plants and plant seeds. While they are doing the assigned tasks, Ms. Padilla explains how to observe plants to identify their needs.
On September 18, 2023, a group of teachers, students, and their families volunteered for the International Coast Cleaning Day at Piñones Beach. We collected 47 pounds of trash, including recyclable materials that were stored apart for recycling.
